Tamara Bavdek

Verdun, QC

This Ilk (meaning ''of a same type, or kind) is the creation of Tamara Bavdek, Industrial Design graduate, who believes that lace is to textiles what gold is to metals or diamonds to rocks. She started turning vintage high quality guipure into statement jewelry in late 2008. Her line combines the comfortable light weight and ornamental aesthetic qualities of lace into sculptural, textural and unique pieces. Reinventing the way jewelry can be worn, sourcing rare fabrics, designing, hand dyeing, cutting, stiffening and assembling are all part of the process of This Ilk.n
